What are the most popular flowers in 2023? That's a question we often hear, regardless of the year. And as surprising as it may seem, flowers do have ebbs and flows when it comes to popularity though here in Houston as well as elsewhere, seasonality can be a factor in availability if a florist has not done the level of forecasting and supply chain management we at Elaine's Florist & Gift Baskets have employed since our founding as a woman-owned business in 1992.
If you are interested in giving or simply purchasing a beautiful arrangement or bouquet with the season's most popular flowers, let's look at some of the most popular flowers in Houston this winter 2023.
Houston Roses and gardeners sometimes have a love/hate relationship (the heat can be hard on them) but when it comes to floral arrangements or bouquets, a beautiful rose is tough to beat, regardless of the occasion or if you simply want them for yourself. We have roses in a variety of colors and types though Hybrid Tea Roses (a long stemmed variety), Spray Roses and Sweetheart Roses are among the most popular.
Snapdragons in the winter of 2023 are as popular as ever with Houstonians. They come in a variety of colors and variations with lavender, pink, white, burgundy and yellow or orange being among the favorites. Our artisans like to use them as an accent or anchoring flower especially when creating a Designer's Choice Bouquet but they'll gladly incorporate them into anything you request.
Persian Buttercups (Ranunculus) when used in Houston winter 2023 floral arrangements are always a favorite. Our designers love the depth adding layers the foliage provides while the glorious colors of their petals, ranging typically from white to purple, pink orange or vibrant yellow complement the other flowers in an arrangement.
Although light in fragrance, a feature that makes them popular for people sensitive to scent, the Ranunculus is often described as having an appealing, lemon-like rose fragrance, complementary to the other flowers our designers include with each bouquet.
Other popular flowers for Houston winter bouquets include Alstroemeria, also known as Peruvian Lilies or Lily of the Incas; Parrot Tulips, a beautiful flower that originated in France during the 18th century; and Waxflowers (also known Alstroemeria as Geraldton Wax), a flower developed in Australia. Be sure to ask us for recommendations and share your (or the recipients) likes or dislikes so that we can create something unique and meaningful.
